Marvelous Magnetic Frames

Total Time Needed: 2-3 Hours

This clever craft multitasks as a refrigerator magnet, a picture frame, and a work of art. It also provides a busload (or planeload!) of fun on a dreary afternoon.


  • Paper
  • Colored pencils and crayons
  • Scissors
  • Adhesive magnetic sheets
  • Craft knife
  • Photographs or digital images
  • Scotch tape


1. On the paper, have your child draw a design with lots of places for small images, such as a house, bus, or plane.

2. Cut out enough magnetic sheeting to back your child's artwork and attach it to the drawing. Cut out the design. Use a craft knife to cut out the photo holes (a parent's job).

3. Snip the pictures to fit behind the holes and tape them in place.
